The Earth’s natural resources, whether it’s the air, water, soils, geology or ecosystems around us, sustain all life on earth. These resources, sometimes termed ‘natural capital’, provide us with a vast range of services, from the more obvious examples, such as the food we eat and the materials we use to build our towns and cities, to those less visible, such as climate regulation and the pollination of plants by insects.
